Anam Cara – Ongoing Women’s Group
August 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An Ongoing Women’s Group of Brigid’s Place, Houston
We meet at Christ Church Cathedral
on the First Monday evening of Each Month.
Join us as we Birth a new Women’s Spirituality Group at Brigid’s Place.
This is a time to meet one another and to learn what it means to be a soul friend. We are Women joining together, opening our hearts to one another, awakening our inner lights and letting the beauty of our soul flow together on this journey called Life.
John O’Donohue describes an AnamCara in this way …
“Anam is the Gaelic word for soul and cara is the word for friend. So anam cara is the Celtic word for “soul friend”. With an anam cara you can share your innermost self, your mind and your heart. This friendship is an act of recognition and belonging. When you have an anam cara, your friendship cuts across all convention, morality, and category. You are joined in an ancient and eternal way with the “friend of your soul.” The Celtic understanding did not set limitations of space or time on the soul. This art of belonging awakens and fosters a deep and special companionship.”
This ongoing circle of women will enjoy friendship and grow together spiritually through book studies, art making, and the sharing of sacred times together.
